Ongoing right sided abdo/pelvic pain - no one can give me answers :(

Posted , 2 users are following.

I'm 45 years old and the last 24 hours have been horrific.  Driving to work yesterday morning and felt what I thought was a 'stitch' in my back (right side).. said "oww" outloud to my hubby... felt like a stabbing pain... happened again, then the pain was simultaneous in the right side and back.  Went on to work, called GP who couldn't see me but I did see another doctor in the surgery.  He was hopeless, never touched me, didn't examine me, dx me with hernia and told me to get a u/s.  I crumpled up the request and gave it to the receptionist to throw in the trash.  Made an appt to see my gyno in the arvo, he palpated my abdomen and immediately said I had a urine infection even though I don't have any symptoms. He was also the one who told me in May 2014 that I had suffered a ruptured cyst...   I have had ongoing issues on the right side for nearly 15 years.  I counted the amount of u/s (internal & external) I've had of the right side abdo/pelvic region - 14.  dx with 16mm fibroid 2 years ago, but they have never been able to visualise my ovaries.  I lost the plot last night because its like they don't take you seriously and you are making this up... I'm currently taking Panadeine Extra and the wheat bag is my best friend... hurts to walk, sit, stand and lie down.  I don't know what do anymore...

    Internal ultrasound or CT scan should be able to see ovaries? Have you had either of those before?

      Yes I have had internal & external pelvis/abdo u/s' s and interestingly they can't visualise the R Ovary due to the loops of bowel...never haf a CT scan on that area... thinking I may need to find another doctor/specialist who thinks outside the box as I am not a textbook patient
